Not a want. A need. Making a comeback back from my hiatus! i got really lost the past few months. Getting back on track via island life 🌴 I've decided to abandon my return ticket home next week, but I'm not staying in Kauai either... stay tuned I'll be making it up as i go 😬
Happy Sunday from a very instagramable Moscow 🌺! Isn’t this the best time of the year? When summer has just arrived and you have 3 months of sun & fun ahead! I am currently planning my summer vacay and need some inspiration! Do you have any gems in Southern Europe that I can not miss? As always, I will give some love back in my stories to my three favorite accounts ✨!

It’s easy to lose yourself in imagination when you’re in a country like Portugal
"For some reason, we see long-term travel to faraway lands as a recurring dream or an exotic temptation, but not something that applies to the here and now. Instead - out of our insane duty to fear, fashion, and monthly payments on things we don't really need - we quarantine our travels to short, frenzied bursts. In this way, as we throw our wealth at an abstract notion called "lifestyle," travel becomes just another accessory - a smooth-edged, encapsulated experience that we purchase the same way we buy clothing and furniture." ~ Rolf Potts ✨
I couldn't agree with this statement more. I have forgotten about fashion, I wear the same clothes day in day out. I swap clothes with other people to spruce up my wardrobe if I feel bored. I travel to feel, feel what it's like to truly live in a place. I put myself out there, and I make sure that the experiences I have aren't merely just another stamp on my passport. I make sure the experiences I have, have meaning and add meaning to my life. For me, travelling gives me new reason, new hope, new perspectives. Things that I couldn't get from 'casual travel' or from staying at home.
I love what I do and I'm lucky to be able to travel for such a long period of time. It did not come easily or without sacrifices and I hope to continue my forever thought provoking journey to new destinations for a long time to come. 🌜🌞 P.S I couldn't help splashing around in the clearest water I've ever seen OMG
The holy month of #Ramadan can bring altered operating hours at businesses and, sometimes, closed doors. But that’s not a bad thing. These are the most beautiful closed doors in the world. 🇹🇳 Also, why are our doors so damn boring in the United States?
Sometimes you arrive in a new place and everything just falls into place. This cliff side village nestled on the coast of Southern Italy is exactly what my soul needed: rest, repair, and renewal

Goes to Barcelona once and loves sangria. Looking for a local sangria spot if anyone has any suggestions!

My favorite place on Oahu so far is definitely the North Shore. The blue water, the deep red soil, and the wild tall grasses are my new happy place. The waves were big yesterday and I just sat and watched the surfers and the shadows move on the sand. I got a strange intuition I’ll be watching West out there someday. I’m so happy he’ll be born with this air as a familiar scent and this wind as a comforting sound. As I enter the final trimester of this pregnancy, it’s really sinking in that he’ll be with us on these adventures very soon. #diverandbelle#andwest

Livin’ la dolce vita, life couldn’t get much sweeter💋🍾
Closed eyes when way up high. It’s my normal no matter the altitude though 😂. Now that it’s Sunday, are you relaxing or stressing the week ahead? I think you should probably relax and enjoy your now!! #sundayfunday
I am so grateful to have this little corner of the internet to share more than just my work, but the women who inspire me and lift me up on a daily basis.
It’s been a dream come true, to begin to build this community of babes in business 👯♀️ and today I realized that there are nearly 500 of you here!! So I thought it would be a great time to share a few little things about me, and then give you the mic 🎤so I can learn a little bit about you! ✨
1. I live in a house with 4 animals and tons of wildlife around me. I’m a massive animal lover and sometimes fantasize about picking up and moving to the amazon 🌿🦓🐆
2. Even though I didn’t grow up in California, it’s the place I feel the most at home.
3. I started taking photos and making little films over 10 years ago! I recently found some of my first movies from 2008 and they are ROUGH 😂
Your turn! 👇🏻 I want to know more of your story :)
!! New post on #cassiescompass !! Have you heard of the #bluewhaleofcatoosa ? This friendly Route 66 landmark inspired my latest travel writing. (link in bio)
Ol’ Blue, as he is affectionately called, was built in 1972 by a grandfather as an anniversary present for his wife who collected whales, but quickly became a swimming hot spot for the whole community. Although swimming here is no longer allowed the whale is free for anyone to stop in and visit. If you are road tripping through Oklahoma this smiling giant is definitely worth a look. 🐳

You should have seen our faces when we first caught sight of this beach! And we only had to share it with one other couple. The beaches in #kefalonia clearly exceeded our expectations 😍
